Christmas in the Clouds | 2005 | PG | - 4.3.3

A vacation ski resort owned and operated by Native Americans is the setting for this comedy: When they find out that a famous travel and hotel critic is going to be a guest, they become desperate to make sure they get an excellent rating. But the hotel manager mistakes a pretty guest for the critic, and the staff treats her royally, while failing to pay any notice to the real critic. With Sam Vlahos, M. Emmet Walsh, Graham Greene, Sheila Tousey and Rosalind Ayres. Directed by Kate Montgomery. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man admires two women and they admire him; he takes off his shirt (we see him in a tank top) and begins chopping wood and striking poses and one woman says, "I hope there are more like him." A woman reads a romance novel and imagines being kissed by the man in the book (we see a bare-chested man holding her in his arms and kissing her). A man imagines walking toward a woman who removes her top (nothing is shown), he removes his shirt and they embrace each other (we see her bare shoulders and his bare chest when they strike the pose). A man and a woman swim together (we see his bare chest and her bare abdomen and cleavage). We see a bare-chested man showering, he jumps out of the shower, wraps a towel around his waist, runs out into the hall and a woman and a child see him.
 A man and a woman kiss and caress each other. A man and a woman wearing robes hug each other and it is implied that they have had sex, and they kiss. A man and a woman wake up in bed together, the woman climbs on top of the man and they kiss (we see his bare chest and her bare leg). A man kisses a woman's hand.
 A man and a woman flirt in several scenes. A man reads a passage from a romance novel out loud to a woman while she struggles to get the book back from him.
 A woman makes a joke about having a sex change operation to see if a man is paying attention to her. An elderly man and a younger woman walk arm in arm. Three women talk about "chasing" a man. A man talks about flirting with a female pen pal and that she flirted back.
 A man admires a woman and makes a remark (it sounded something like "hot mother"). We hear that a man's ex-wife was unfaithful. A young woman, her mother and grandmother talk about the young woman going to meet a man with whom she has been corresponding by letter.
 A man seated in a bar holds a jacket over his lap, something in the jacket pocket wiggles and moves and two women sitting across from him look at him suspiciously.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We hear that a man is missing; we see him and another man who is injured (we see a bloody scratch on his forehead and his leg is bound from an injury) in a cabin, where they try to keep warm until someone finds them. A man who collapsed in the snow and is weak from the elements is found by another man and taken to safety.
 A man and a woman argue and she slaps him in the face.
 A man finds an abandoned vehicle in a snowdrift but finds no one in it. A man starts his car and flames billow from under the hood (he is unharmed). We see a car in a snow bank and two men in a cabin one with an injured leg.
 A man yells and runs into a hallway when the water in his shower turns cold. A man yells at a group of people (his employees) and beseeches them to do better work.
 A man describes letting blood from a dead animal and ripping the flesh off its bones. A chef looks at a dead turkey whose feathers have been removed and there is a bit of blood on the skin. A man walks through a restaurant where people have been served food: he stops at each table and describes the animal that they are preparing to eat (he says they were pets or tells them the name of the animal, etc.) trying to make people lose their appetites.
 A man slumps out of his chair (he is drunk) and sees a small mouse under the coffee table. A mouse skitters across a table, falls off and into a basket of linens, jumps to the floor and runs hiding under cabinets. A man vomits on another man.
 A man teases a woman by telling her to say things that are not nice in a Native American dialect. A little girl is very sad because her pet mouse has run away (it is eventually found).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
